IIT Kanpur being one of the premier institutes of the country is at the frontier of scientific progress in the diverse fields of research. As a student body aimed at promoting student-based research at IIT Kanpur, ARC has organised a Students' Research Convention (SRC).
SRC is a multi-conference research convention, a platform to present and share research experiences and provide an opportunity to interact with leading researchers across the globe.
The 2nd Edition of the Students' Research Convention started with the first set of conferences. The morning conferences illustrated the technical acumen and hard work put in by the participants. The conferences were followed by one of our featured events, DaRe. The speakers, Shri A.S. Parihar and Dr S.M. Abbas gave an insightful talk on how research matters in the field of defence and security. The post-lunch sessions saw another three conferences with informing poster sessions. We were then graced by Dr Archana Bhattacharyya, our featured guest and Dr Mohua Banerjee, the head of Women's Cell, IIT Kanpur as part of the WiRe event. Dr Bhattacharyya's ideas on geomagnetism in general and women in science in particular were really intriguing. Thereafter, the Chief Guest of the Convention, Dr. Chidambaram fascinated the wide audience present through his talk on "Multiple Dimensions in Research". The day ended with our flagship event BeER, which really engaged the audience with an interactive session discussion on the relation between entrepreneurship and research.
The final day of SRC'19 continued to witness the amazing conferences and talks on varied topics ranging from energy and climate to Women in Research. The Morning conferences were followed by the flagship event "Am I on the Right Track?", which inspired students to find the career stream they are passionate about and make them realise the vast potential their future holds. The day only got better as we got the opportunity to be an audience to an eye-opening discussion on Industrial vs Academic Research under the premiere edition of InvAR. The panel featured Mr. Rajiv Kumar, Prof. C S Upadhyay and Prof. Avinash Agarwal who suggested different ways to bridge the gap between industry and academia. The final talk of the day, organized in association with Women’s Cell, was graced by Dr. Rohini Godbole. Her deep insights on " Life in science" through her mammoth experience were highly inspiring young and experienced minds alike. With the motivation from successful researchers and inspiration from key industry leaders, SRC’19 concluded remarkably with a captivating "Networking Dinner".
Detailed coverage of various events will be released soon
Bring your research to the forefront
SRC provides a brilliant platform to present and share your research experiences and the opportunity to interact with leading researchers from all around the globe.
Enjoy events across many domains
With events ranging from industrial research to the significance of research for entrepreneurs, SRC provides a chance to learn about and venture into new domains of research.
As most of the conferences are department or topic specific, this event will provide a good opportunity for students from different domains to learn about new fields and get reviews on their work through lively discussion and critical feedback from the acknowledged professors, researchers and industrial personnel from different research areas.
Am I On the Right Track is a session that aims to provide students with information about what their future will hold on pursuing a particular career path (Industry, Science or Entrepreneurship). As most of the students have a vague opinion regarding their future, this session will help them decide what they really want to do, and what practices to follow to become a success in the career path they choose.
In this event, we aim to bring together top industrialists and people from academia to discuss what the challenges to industry-academia collaboration are and ways to overcome these challenges. We hope that this event will be the start of a new and better relationship of collaboration and synergy between the two domains.
This event will give students a chance to meet entrepreneurs who were once researchers and have turned their research work into a successful business. The professionals are expected to motivate the participants of the convention with their experience as a researcher-turned-entrepreneur, and the way to pass hurdles in doing so.
Through this event, we aim to introduce women into the research pipeline in an attempt to empower gender equality in the campus and improve the quality and quantity of scientific research in the campus and in the country. Top women researchers from the country will give a glimpse of their journey and inspire greater participation from women in the field of research.
Research and academia have found a way in a multitude of domains which in turn has helped in the betterment of society. In this event, we hope to see how research has helped in the defense of the country, the latest technologies in this domain, and the need and requirement of bright researchers in this domain.
